Thou God of love, thou ever-blest,
Pity my suffering state
When wilt thou set my soul at rest
From lips that love deceit?

Women: Has made its home
Men: With those who peace abhor
Women: I am for peace
Men: But when I speak

So long in Meshech’s land;
That I have made my dwelling where
The tents of Kedar stand.

And he has answered me.
From lying lips and crafty tongue,
O Lord, my soul set free.
